Family law is a dynamic subject that is constantly changing and provides a challenge to everyone involved with it. Family Law and Practice offers a clear picture of the practical considerations that arise when advising in a divorce case. It sets out the divorce procedure, explains the financial implications of divorce and includes advice on ensuring that clients receive the money that they are owed. The book also outlines the principles governing the care and protection of children, the remedies available for victims of domestic abuse and the public funding regime in family cases.

This new edition has been fully updated to include an expanded section on process options; the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020; the online divorce process and the latest position in relation to the initial implementation of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021. The book is fully up to date on case law including E v L [2021] on short marriages; Rothschild v de Souza [2020] on litigation misconduct; LM v DM (Costs Ruling) [2021] on costs and H-N and others (Children) (Domestic Abuse: Finding of Fact Hearings) [2021] highlighting how courts should be alert to coercive and controlling behaviour and its impact in children proceedings.
